31 days of running to kickoff 2013

Started 2013 with 31 days in a row running at least 3 miles.

I wish I had recorded some vitals like body fat percentage and resting heart rate etc when I started so I could see what effect 31 days of running consecutively has.  I definitely saw fat just melting away from my midsection which is always a challenge for me to lose it.  Overall I felt more energy and clear headed as running is a great stress reducer for me.

In case you’re wondering, no, I did not run on February 1.  I was too worried I’d convince myself to go the whole year running every day, which was my original idea.

  1. Congrats on your motivation, but your body needs recovery time. You muscles cannot repair themselves fast enough if you run every single day. You’d be much better off running 6 miles every other day, rather than 3 miles every day. That way your muscles can grow stronger. You’d be surprised how much benefit it has to take that approach. Good luck with your running. 🙂
